9:01 am
have gotten 2" of rain so if you are heading out be aware and watch yourself on the roads. as we look we are talking about temperatures into the 90s today once again, currently it is 78 degrees right now at reagan national airport. we have 80 already at annapolis. 76 degrees at bwi thurgood marshall, 74 to the south in fredericksburg. so a hot, sticky day today. i can't rule out showers or isolated thunderstorms popping up throughout the course of the morning because that system is actually continuing to push that wet weather a little more to the east but we'll stay on top of it for you. we'll have details for your weekend forecast a little later. back to you. a former president gives quite the seal of approval to the current president. bill clinton, president clinton, gave a fiery speech to the democratic delegates at the convention last night in his support of president barack
9:02 am
obama. as fox's doug luzader reports from charlotte, president obama will accept the renomination tonight with a little change in plans. >> reporter: there has been some last-minute drama here but last night former president bill clinton largely stuck to his script and made the case for president obama. one convention, two presidents. president obama came on stage to thank former president clinton for what amounted to a full-throated endorsement. [ applause and cheers ] >> i proudly nominate him to be the standard-bearer of the democratic party. [ applause and cheers ] >> reporter: he would hold the stage here for nearly an hour, well over his allotted time. but he fired up the crowd and he answered a question that has vexed democrats in recent day: are we better off now than we were four years ago? >> we were losing 750,000 jobs a month. are we doing better than that today? >> yes! >> the answer is yes. >> reporter: in the end, the clinton speech was exactly what the obama campaign wanted, but not everything here has gone by
9:03 am
the script. >> all those delegates opposed say no. >> no!! >> in the opinion of the -- let me did that again. >> reporter: for starters the party had to make an awkward revision to its platform which had omitted references to god and jerusalem a big issue for supporters of israel. and another complication, workers had to start dismantling the enormous stage at bank of america stadium. the planned venue for president obama's speech tonight was nixed officially because of threatening weather. but a party official admitted to having difficulties finding enough people to fill the seats. it means that president obama will be back on this smaller stage tonight to accept the democratic nomination. and this 20,000-seat arena will be much easier to fill and they will probably have to turn some people away. in charlotte, doug luzader, fox news. thanks, doug. and fox 5 will broadcast president obama's acceptance speech tonight beginning 10:00. then stay tuned for fox 5 ns
9:04 am
dnc and reaction. we'll also stream the president's speech on meanwhile, it looks like mrs. obama has bragging rights over mitt romney's wife ann. the nielsen company says 4 million more people watched the first lady's convention speech than watched mrs. romney. the social media presence at both the democratic and republican conventions is soaring compared to previous years. in 2008, twitter reported a total of 360,000 tweets. this year, twitter is almost at 9 million tweets for the two party conventions and is expected to pass 10 million by the time the democrats wrap up their convention tonight. checking some of the morning's other top stories for you now, a 12-year-old boy from port washington has entered an alford plea to involuntary manslaughter in the beating case of a 2-year-old girl, a foster child living with his
9:05 am
family. in return, prosecutors dropped the more serious charges of second-degree murder. the boy's plea was not an admission of guilt but, rather, an acknowledgement that prosecutors had enough evidence to win the case in court. that little girl was found unresponsive in herfoster family's home. d.c. police are investigating whether an attack on capitol hill is connected to a similar crime that left a man in a coma. casey adams says two men jumped him while he was talking on his cell phone late tuesday night. the 26-year-old just moved to our area for an internship on the hill. he has several cuts on his face and swollen lip. this comes less than three weeks after tc maslin was beaten and robbed of his phone. both crimes happened on north carolina avenue near eastern market on the hill. >> just said that after they had knocked me down and got my phone from me, that they left me there, you know, on the street just -- i mean, i was unconscious for maybe a few
9:06 am
moments. but after the two gentlemen left, they hopped into the back of a car and they sped away. >> d.c. police released surveillance video last week that shows people in a 2005 hyundai sonata using the first victim's credit card near the crime scene. we have some breaking news this morning from baltimore. former ravens owner art modell has died. he passed away early this morning after a brief hospital stay at johns hopkins. modell bought the cleveland browns in 1961 and moved the team to baltimore in 1996. that move made him a hero in charm city but it made him hated back in cleveland. maryland governor martin o'malley issued a statement that says in part, quote, art brought the game and spirit of football back to baltimore. he helped reinvigorate baltimoreans' sense of pride in their team and their city. art modell was 87 years old.

9:09 am
about a teenager with similar symptoms. the bubonic plague is transmitted to humans by infected flea bites. she thinks her daughter may have been exposed to the disease by an insect found near a dead squirrel she wanted to bury. a huge spike in cases of the west nile virus. the cdc released new numbers wednesday and said there was a 25% jump from just last week some 1500 cases up to nearly 2,000. the number of deaths from the virus also jumped up 32% from 66 to 87%. the good news is that no new cases were reported in d.c., maryland or virginia. an 83-year-old fairfax county woman is in the hospital after being attacked by what appears to be a rabid beaver. this happened on tuesday at lake barcroft in the bailey crossroads area. a friend noticed the beaver that didn't seem right and made a beeline for the woman,

9:12 am

9:14 am
check now on fox 5 morning now, d.c. councilman marion barry has been vocal on at which time they are week at the democratic national convention. th former mayor has been urging greater action on statehood and voting rights in congress accusing the dnc of marginalizing the d.c. delegation and said it was wrong that delegate eleanor holmes norton was not giving a speaking role at the convention. barry tweeted this link to a picture here showing the view of the d.c. delegates what they
9:15 am
have of the main stage at the dnc. buzz reports that several states which will likely go for mitt romney in november have better views at the arena in charlotte. so that's his perspective at the d.c. delegation to the states there. >> that's interesting. all right. it's not just democrats gathering in charlotte. virginia governor bob mcdonnell is among dozens of republicans offering counter arguments at the nearby nascar hall of fame and joins us live from charlotte. good morning, governor. how's it feel down there? you're in enemy territory. >> hi, tony. [ laughter ] >> i got a little friendly reception last week in tampa but it's nice to be down here. democracy is about the marketplace of ideas and the democrats have their show this week and having us for a few minutes to give counter points is healthy for everybody. >> let's start the process. let's talk about it. republicans have been saying for weeks now that president obama can't run on his record.
9:16 am
now, what seems interesting to me so far at the democratic national convention is, we are in fact seeing a defense of his record mostly by bill clinton last night. do you think republicans have to change their strategy? >> ha, no, not at all. listen, bill clinton is a good team player and gives a great speech. but you know what speeches don't create jobs. good policies do. and we're going it hear a great speech i'm sure from president obama tonight that will make people feel good, until tomorrow morning when they get the jobs report and we find out that for 43 months in a row, the unemployment rate has been at 8% or more and 23 million people don't have jobs or are underemployed. that's the bottom line at this point is rhetoric, we have a surplus of rhetoric in washington what we need is results and strong leadership. gas prices doubled as we heard on monday. and tuesday, we hit $16 trillion in national debt.
9:17 am
that's unstainable and immoral! $200,000 plus for an american family of four. at the end of the day rhetoric doesn't matter. there will be a little bump from the conventions and then the middle class voters wants to know who will get it done and they will pick mitt romney who has a plan. >> with the whole better off theme that romney and ryan are talking about, let's talk about what president clinton said and talking about the jobs number. he pointed out that the -- this administration has been adding jobs recently not enough but has been adding jobs and according to president clinton, he said since 1961, far more jobs have been created under democratic presidents than republican presidents. he cites 42 million to 24 million. what's your response to that? >> that may very well be accurate and most of those were probably created in the 90s 90s when bill clinton was president working with a republican congress because bill clinton tacked to the center. he worked together with them, welfare reform, balanced budget, job creation, that was
9:18 am
what they did working together. that's not what you got with this president. no matter how you slice the numbers, 23 million people don't have work. and i tell you, the worst effect has been on minorities, on the poor, and on college graduates. these are the coalitions that got president obama elected in 2008. the message hasn't worked for them. they are very discouraged, even the top official in virginia senator mark warner said just yesterday that he doesn't see nearly the enthusiasm in virginia. he doesn't see the same amount of signs. and that's why obama's gone from 8 up to now even in virginia. i see a lot more enthusiasm for republicans because you know what they see? they see mitt romney having solutions. when he was governor of massachusetts, the unemployment rate and the deficits went down and the surpluses went up. just the opposite of what you got with this president. so at the end of the day, tony, results matter. the talk and the speeches and rhetoric are nice for a short period of time but people are hurting and they want solutions and mitt romney has a record
9:19 am
and an ideas-driven campaign to get there. >> governor, i want to ask you for a quick answer if possible. i know you go the a letter from officials from 38 different counties and cities across the state about transportation issues in virginia saying more needs to be done. >> weavewe have more to do. we have $4 billion in bonds and other things a couple of years ago. i had a plan this year to get $300 million past the house rejected in the senate. i'll be back at it again. i grew up in fairfax county as you know and we have to do more to keep that great economic engine in northern virginia aive look right now. we have the hot links projects on 95 and the beltway. more needs to be done. >> governor coming to us from charlotte, north carolina, thank you. >> thanks, tony. nice to talk to him get that perspective. >> it is. well, are your sleep habits a warning sign of dementia? we'll tell you what a new study
9:20 am
found straight ahead. >> plus, just how healthy is the d.c. region? we have the results of dr. oz's 15-minute physicals in today's health alert. >> first, let's check in with holly, who is learning the latest in fashion. holly. >> reporter: that's right. just how fashionable are you? that's the question we're asking this morning. and i can tell you that you will be a whole lot more in style if you come out tonight to georgetown where we are live this morning where they are getting ready for their annual "fashion's night out" and being trendy for fall doesn't just mean wearing the right things. it means having the right makeup and the right hair. salons getting in on the action, too. we'll tell you all about it live later. >> thank you very much. take a look at this as we head to the break. these dancing traffic officers are also in charlotte, north carolina. they are directing traffic as the dnc takes place so they decided to bust out the moves to make the job a little more exciting. of course, it's also bringing smiles to most of the people who pass by. 9:20. we'll be right back. heavy load in america. but mitt romney plan, a middle class to $2,000 more a year in taxes. multi-millionaires like himself hits the middle class harder... bigger break. forward for america? this message.

sleeping could be signs of alzheimer's disease. researchers in the uk found a type of brain plaque commonly found in alzheimer's patients showed up in mice around the same time the mice started having trouble sleeping. the hope is that this will eventually lead to earlier detection of alzheimer's disease in human beings. this morning, hundreds of people in d.c. have a new sense of how healthy they are. more than 800 people were given free physicals yesterday thanks to a visit from dr. oz and dozens of medical volunteers from the howard university college of medicine. participants were screened for blood pressure, diabetes, cholesterol, weight and waist size. dr. oz's team found the state of health in d.c. is not all that good. more than half of those tested have high blood pressure. two-thirds were overweight or obese. only 20% were at normal weight. the national average is 33%. and more young people in d.c. are smokers compared with the other cities where dr. oz
9:26 am
tested. despite these findings, dr. oz told us it was a day filled with hope. >> people are very empowered. they feel they can have hope. it's something you feel when you deal with hundreds of people. the first question i ask of most people is, what do i do about it? how i do fix it? it was a celebration. >> we want to take this opportunity to thank dr. oz and especially to howard university college of medicine for hosting the event. coming up we'll have dr. oz on to talk about an episode next week with first lady michelle obama. a young girl learns that doing the right thing in life can pay off. how she was rewarded for returning a lot of money next. >> president obama takes to the stage tonight and at least one group of students will be all ears. wisdom. >> reporter: allison and tony, this is campaign u at american university. we're talking politics, the race for the white house. what happened at the dnc?

i'm barack obama, and i approve this message. mitt romney's position on women's's dangero. vo:mitt romney and paul ryan would get rid of planned parenthood funding.
9:30 am
and allow employers to deny coverage for cancer screenings and birth control. we can't afford to let him take away our choices... to take away basic health care. vo: both backed proposals to outlaw abortions...even in cases of rape and incest. i don't think that women's health issues have faced a crisis like this in decades. here's a reason to do a good deed for someone else. it may come back to you. 8-year-old abby jacobson from maine found a tiny purse outside a sam's club. there was $4,000, gold rings and a debit card inside. abby and her parents found the owners through the bank. this is a picture of abby hugging the grateful owner there. when asked what she would do the with the money if she could keep it she said she would see justin bieber in concert so the bank's senior vice president
9:31 am
was so impressed with abby's good will are the return of the money he scored those tickets for her and her family to see the b. >> that's great. >> nice story. >> very nice. >> so great that she is honest at such an early age. >> that's right. >> good for her. >> great story. >> yup. >> justin bieber might give her a shoutout if he hears about the story. >> that's true. that would make her day, i'm sure. >> wouldn't it? we have some wet weather to talk about as well as some heat and some humidity. so let's get to it. we are going to begin with a look at the fox 5 accuweather radar and show you what's going on right now. we had some storms that had kicked up into spotsylvania county, stafford, here to the south, and now we had a severe thunderstorm warning that ended but we still have a flash flood warning until 11:15. they have had a lot of heavy rainful in the area moving east at 15 miles an hour slow movers causing a lot of the rain to really kind of kick in and the ground is already saturated from the rainfall we have had the last few days off and on.
9:32 am
so this isn't making it any easier. a few strikes of lightning there, but not as much as it was earlier. so we are going to watch this closely. we are talking about the rain moving its way to the east already you can see some just heading towards the district. expect it to continue into the morning hours. but hopefully, clearing out by the afternoon. so let's go to our weather maps then and take a look at where we have this warning in effect right here spotsylvania, stafford county. this is where we are under this warning and also that includes the city of fredericksburg until 11:15. it's a warm start to your day. 73 degrees at max, same at gaithersburg, 73 at manassas. 79 at reagan national airport. 76 at baltimore and 76 at dulles. we are going to continue to see warm conditions across the region just about everywhere. this is the same map so we'll continue with that. this is actually going up the mid-atlantic, that's what it is. 68 at boston, cooler, and 73 for new york city. so we have a frontal system that's causing issues across the area that will continue to do so into tomorrow. we'll see a lot more sunshine
9:33 am
in our forecast. but the next frontal system will be the weathermaker into the weekend. we are talking some showers and some storms. in the meantime, for today, 90 degrees. we are still talking about the isolated storms that are popping up and the showers but partly sunny by the afternoon hours. hopefully that sun will make a return. storms for your saturday and sunday and then we clear out. back to you, allison and tony. all right. last week, students at -- [ coughing ] >> pardon me. choked up. it's my alma mater. last week students at american university critiqued the republican national convention as mitt romney was nominated. today they were following the dnc in charlotte. wisdom martin joins us from american university with this morning's campaign u2012. wisdom, make you feel old being there with though students or not? >> reporter: allison and tony, i'm not used to being in a classroom at this advanced age. i remember it fondly though.
9:34 am
let's focus on campaign u with the students of american university and the classroom of professor lenny steinhorn. he is about to give the students -- this is our second week here. we are going to be here every thursday getting reaction from what's happening in the political world and in the race for the white house. he is going to give the instructions to the class about what they are going to be discussing today and then we are going to hear from some of the students about what they thought about what's going on right now politically, the dnc, the republican national convention. professor steinhorn will talk and then we'll hit it. >> so convention. democratic convention. we're living through it right now. this seems to be a convention different from denver in 2008. they are not talking about dreams. they're talking about determination. they're not talking about promise. they're talking about patience. they're not talking about hope. they're talking about history. and that history is how we got into this mess and that it takes time and patience to get out of it. if that's part of the frame that they are trying to create, are they accomplishing their
9:35 am
goals and how did that marquis performance by the "explainer in chief" bill clinton, did it help reach those goals for the democratic party? >> reporter: that's professor lenny steinhorn asking you guys the questions. so we are going to ask you some questions. who thought the speech from bill clinton was good last night? let's start right here. we'll go easy right here. you thought the speech was good last night. tell me why. >> well, at first i thought bill clinton was going to talk to an empty love seat. >> clearly a reference to clint eastwood. >> yes. >> bill clinton fashion it was long. but he was very good highlighting obama's accomplishments which is definitely what he needed someone to clearly communicate what he has done. >> and do you think it worked? >> i do. i think the most important thing that clinton had to do was to reinforce the idea that neither clinton nor any of his predecessors could have possibly fixed the economy in four years and he made that perfectly clear. he was articulate and charismatic. >> who didn't like the speech last night? did anybody not like the bill clinton speech last night?
9:36 am
right here behind me. we're staying on this side of the room. this is the talkative side of the room. why didn't you like what he had it say? >> i felt a bit distracted by him constantly -- he was connecting to the democratic party and putting a lot of blame on the republican party and saying how the republican party was not connected as a party. i just felt very distracted by that after most points he made went back to that statement. >> okay. >> reporter: so we're almost out of time so we're going to ask one question for the whole class. compare the two. who thinks that the republicans are doing -- had done a great job with their convention by a show of hands? who liked the republican convention from what you saw? all right. who thinks that the dnc is great and they are doing a better job or you like what you see there? >> reporter: so it's fairly even for as far as the political landscape in this classroom. anybody else see anything that stood out for them at the dnc since that's what we're on
9:37 am
right now? anything stand out for you at the dnc? just raise your hands. we only got a couple of seconds left. what else stood out? was it michelle obama? the president? anything. >> i just think overall the general inclusivity of the entire convention with the pride flyers that you saw in some shots how there was visible ethnic differences of the speakers and people they showed so that to me shows like a real connection to the true america. >> reporter: and expectations from the president expected to hear tonight? anybody? here we go right here. this side of the room is talking. >> i think it's one thing to have a really good speaker tonight so the bar is high. >> reporter: thank you very much. that's it from campaign u. we are going to stay here and have -- this is going to be streaming on the web. this is going to be on we are going to have much more on this. we'll be here every thursday doing followups with what's happening in the race for the white house. back to you. >> thank you. is kelly pickler pulling a

9:39 am
9:40 am
anncr: this casino's in west virginia. but it makes millions off marylanders every year. now they're running dishonest ads. why? because voting for question seven is a vote to build a... world-class resort casino in maryland. creating thousands of jobs and... ...according to the official department of legislative... services, hundreds of millions for our schools. while saving taxpayer money by cutting casino subsidies.
9:41 am
question seven. good jobs and better schools in maryland. not west virginia. country singer and former "american idol" contestant kellie pickler, you remember pick, pickler? she has shaved her head. shears why. she did it to support a childhood friend agnosed with breast cancer back in june. this is a picture of the two friends pecker will on the right there. her friend summer miller had a double mastectomy after a diagnosis. she has a family history and a mammogram found the tumor. that's a lovely picture. >> it is. a painting done by all four beatles is set to be auctioned

actually a big thank you to vineyard vines they let us come in early and check out some of their wares and like many of the 100-plus shops, salons and restaurants that will be taking part in "fashion's night out," they have a special deal going on. this is called the 10-10 so they are going to give 10% off on everything they are selling and to give 10% of the vital voices which is the charity that "fashion's night out" supports. also, every store does it a little different so you're probably wondering how do i know which deal is where? look for these. this is a program to the night. it has all the different shopping bargains listed inside. who is doing what. and all the other fun things as well including the, you know, outside disco dance party that's going on and the pedicabs and the red carpets and all of that. now, when you're talking about your look and fall and updating it, it's not just about putting your clothes on especially for ladies. it's about doing up our face, as well. and so that's where the nectar skin bar comes in and melissa.
